 It just seems too gross for me to do that. I have looked into it but I just couldn't do it.

I used them.  Not a huge fan of them though.  I always had to wear a pad as a back up because I had problems with them leaking.

i have used them and changing them can get messy but there are no leaks, unless you leave it in over the recommended time

I did not like the Instead soft cups. I ordered a Diva Cup and LOVE it!

If you put them in correctly, they don't leak:)

Putting them in correctly wasn't the problem.  It didn't matter what I did they always leaked.

I have used them, but I wasn't a big fan.  Here's the TMI part: I didn't like how a heavy flow day could make the bathroom look like a scene out of a horror movie when I took it out.  But don't let that stop you from giving them a try.  Maybe they will work fine for you, when changed frequently.
